Putin’s War Machine Was Made in Washington

By: Cliff Kincaid


The “experts” say Russia is a gas station with an army. Who made this army possible? The answer: politicians and corporate interests in Washington, D.C., and other Western capitals.

In our 2014 book, Back from the Dead: The Return of the Evil Empire, we quoted Michael Birnbaum, the Washington Post’s Moscow bureau chief, as noting that “after Russia’s brief war with neighboring Georgia in 2008, top leaders rethought their old habits. Although Russia ultimately prevailed in that conflict, its soldiers proved ill-equipped and disorganized, struggling with Soviet-era equipment that failed them on numerous occasions. So leaders turned to the West to boost their capabilities.”

In other words, the West decided to make future Russian conquests more easily accomplished by the Kremlin. The French, the Germans, and Italians began providing sophisticated military equipment to Moscow.

These deals with Moscow make the activities of Armand Hammer seem mild by comparison.

Hammer was the chairman of Occidental Petroleum and a champion of East-West trade whose father Julius laundered money to establish the first Soviet espionage networks in the United States. Armand Hammer was himself exposed as a Soviet agent who helped former Vice President Al Gore and his family become rich.

Trade with the USSR served Soviet interests then, and it serves Russian interests today.

President Obama and his then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton engineered a “reset” with Russia, supposedly to improve relations. It only served to bolster the regime of Vladimir Putin.

Biden is Stumbling into a World War

By: Cliff Kincaid

As a 40-year veteran of the conservative movement, as someone who met Ronald Reagan several times and promoted his “Reagan Doctrine” of anti-communist action, I am astounded at how so many modern-day “conservatives” are taking the side of a former KGB spy in the Russia vs. Ukraine confrontation. This development represents the Russian infiltration of a movement whose defining characteristic was once anti-communism.

Almost as disturbing is Joe Biden’s Vice President Kamala Harris at the Munich “security conference,” threatening former Russian President Vladimir Putin with a “swift, severe, and united” response if Russia attacks Ukraine.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky  called this road “appeasement” and he knows who the real appeasers are. He also knows that “sanctions” have been too little too late, and that no sanctions will convince the Germans to terminate purchases of gas from Russia. That makes Germany into a gas station owned by Russia.

In truth, Ukraine has made its share of enemies in the West, as retired Lt. Colonel and “whistleblower,” Alexander Vindman, who was born in Ukraine, played a role in the campaign to impeach former President Trump, who did what the Obama/Biden regime never did – arm Ukraine with weapons to defeat invading Russian forces.

Texas Allowed to Use Abandoned Border Wall Material to Build the Border Wall

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Some of it actually…

After the Biden administration halted the construction of former President Donald Trump’s border wall, hundreds of unused wall panels were left at construction sites.

Now 1,700 unused panels — declared surplus property by the federal government — have been shipped from California to help build Gov. Greg Abbott’s state-funded wall, according to spokespeople for the U.S. Department of Defense and the Texas Facilities Commission.

The Biden administration halted virtually all work on the federal wall in January 2021. Lt. Col. Chris Mitchell, a spokesperson for the Department of Defense, which had been in charge of awarding some of the federal wall contracts under Trump, said the 32-foot-tall steel bollard panels were at a storage site in San Diego.

The Texas Facilities Commission, the state office in charge of Texas border wall construction, applied in November to receive the surplus panels through the federal government’s General Service Administration, a program that allows nonprofit organizations and state and local governments to receive property the federal government no longer needs.

Francoise Luca, a spokesperson for the Facilities Commission, said the state didn’t have to disclose to the federal government that it planned to use the panels for Texas’ border wall project, adding that the state followed the surplus program’s rules.

In December, the Facilities Commission hired New York-based Posillico Civil Inc. to haul the panels from San Diego to Eagle Pass at a cost of $2 million, according to the contract awarded to the engineering firm. The company finished the job earlier this month.

Time for the FBI to Investigate Carvana

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

It came to my attention a few months ago when a local news report described how a nurse bought a vehicle from Carvana and now had to rent a vehicle in order to get to work every day. Why? Well, it seems Carvana could never seem to get her the title to the car and the already two-times temporary tags had expired.

Poking around some more seems there is a building epidemic of fraud with Carvana. Beyond the FBI that should be investigating… seems Wall Street experts should look a little deeper as well when rating investments with Carvana, the balance sheets, and well… police reports.

But read on…

Park it: Carvana prohibited from selling cars in Raleigh, DMV says


Carvana has an 8-story vehicle vending machine is at 4830 Koger Blvd. in Greensboro.

LAND O’ LAKES, Fla. (WFLA ) – The State of Florida filed a complaint against Carvana on Wednesday, 8 On Your Side has learned.

The complaint comes as Better Call Behnken continues to hear from Carvana customers who aren’t receiving titles after purchasing cars.

Trapper’s Quote Of The Week

If you think the lies and atrocities with COVID-19 are horrendous, wait until they ramp up Climate Change again. And when they do, the infractions and guilt associated with the old/new power grab will know no bounds. How many breaths can we take today?


Durham’s Evidence of Hillary et. al and the Concocted RussiaGate

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

It was and for that matter still is an unconventional and unconditional war on a presidential candidate, a president, and the American people. It should also be noted that Hillary did not invent the whole fake scandal but she did approve it and paid for it.

When former Attorney General William Barr gave testimony and said in summary that the Trump operation was SPIED on, he was right and more right than we can understand. When Donal Trump said that his team was wire-tapped… while wiretapping is no longer the tactic used… he too was quite right.

This is a very confusing affair but there are several key people that should be not only indicted but surely jailed. The BIG question is will Attorney General Merrick Garland now allow prosecution as it should happen.


John Brennan, former Director of the CIA

Remember Peter Strzok and Marc Elias? They both have given testimony to the Grand Jury. But where are Obama, Hillary, Biden, Brennan, and Comey in the mix so far? There is nothing yet to report on those players… but there is hope. It is then we need to know and understand the relationship between the various agencies and the media that were willing accomplices. Biden and Sullivan are in the equation too.

Sit back and read on… maybe even take notes.

If you are a detailed kinda person that wants to read the documents in full, go –>



EXCLUSIVE: Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe met with Special Counsel John Durham on more than one occasion and told him there was evidence in intelligence to support the indictments of “multiple people” in his investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, sources told Fox News.

Fox News first reported on Durham’s latest filing, which alleged that lawyers from Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign in 2016 had paid to “infiltrate” servers belonging to Trump Tower and later the White House, in order to establish an “inference” and “narrative” to bring to federal government agencies linking Donald Trump to Russia.

Stand With Ukraine Event in DC

By: Cliff Kincaid

Activists from across the US will gather at the Lincoln Memorial on Sunday, February 20 at 2:00 PM to take part in the eighth annual vigil honoring fallen heroes of the 2013-14 Revolution of Dignity, and to petition President Biden for a stronger stance in deterring Russia.

The rally will specifically petition the Biden Administration to:

  • Enact potent sanctions including stopping Nord Stream 2 in response to Russia’s aggression in Ukraine and its failure to de-escalate and withdraw its forces from the Ukrainian border.
  • Prepare and announce further crippling sanctions, such as cutting Russia off from SWIFT, which would trigger immediately upon further invasion of Ukraine.
  • Continue sending Ukraine sufficient quantities of effective weapons to enable Ukrainians to defend their territorial integrity and independence.

Click here for press release.

What you need to know:

Vladimir Putin’s puppet, Viktor Yanukovych, had won the election as president of Ukraine by promising close ties to the West—but he secretly negotiated a deal to bring the former Soviet republic back into Moscow’s sphere of influence. The people of Ukraine were betrayed and then revolted in a series of protests that will go down in history as the Ukrainian revolution of 2014. It is also known simply as Euromaidan, named for the pro-European tilt of the protests and the central square in Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, where the demonstrations began.

Of course, the story of the anti-Soviet/Russian protests in Ukraine does not have a completely happy ending. Putin responded with a Russian invasion of Ukraine, a struggle that continues as the Ukrainian government continues to plead for weapons for self-defense. Putin’s invasion had to be based in part on the knowledge that if a revolution could depose his crony in Ukraine, it could also happen to him.

Now, sensing the West will not defend Ukraine under a weak U.S. President and a German member of NATO making a deal with Russia for gas, Putin thinks he has a new opportunity.

Another invasion gives a green light to Chinese dictator Xi to take Taiwan.

The press release from the Sunday event organizers makes the further points:

  • In response to Russia’s 2014 invasion of Ukraine, the US and its allies instituted economic sanctions. Unfortunately, these existing sanctions have not prevented Vladimir Putin from continuing this war, which has claimed more than 14,000 lives. Much stronger sanctions need to be prepared and publicly announced in order to act as a deterrent to further Russian invasion.
  • The Ukrainian people and armed forces are firmly committed to defending themselves against any threat to their democracy and independence. However, to stand up to Russia, Ukraine needs continued support— particularly anti-armor systems, air defense, and coastal defense. The US recently provided Ukraine several hundred more Javelin anti-tank missiles and other aid but many experts see this as only a partial deterrent against the troops, modern tanks, and aircraft Russia has in place.


Amazon Suspends Black Lives Matter from Charity Program

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Amazon may have finally read the memo… but that has hardly stopped much of the nefarious operations of BLM. Gotta wonder if any other federal agency is looking at BLM much less those in media or the White House… digressing yes, but read on.

Amazon’s charity website has suspended the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF) amid questions about the group’s financial transparency. AmazonSmile, which donates 0.5% from purchases to designated nonprofits, still lists dozens of local Black Lives Matter (BLM) chapters among its thousands of approved charities, but noticeably absent is the BLMGNF, the national arm of the BLM movement.

“We offer the AmazonSmile program to make it easy for our customers to support their favorite charitable organizations, and we work to offer a broad spectrum of organizations, including those working to end racial injustice,” an Amazon spokesperson told Fox News Digital. “States have rules for nonprofits, and organizations participating in AmazonSmile need to meet those rules. Unfortunately this organization fell out of compliance with the rules in several states, so we’ve had to temporarily suspend them from the program until they come into compliance.

“We hope that happens soon, and in the meantime, customers who have already selected them in AmazonSmile are able to continue supporting them, and we’ll hold any funds accrued until they’re back in compliance.”

The suspension was first reported by the Washington Examiner.

The news comes after BLMGNF shut down all of its online fundraising earlier this month following demands by attorneys general in California and Washington state that it submit delinquent financial disclosures for 2020, the Examiner reported. source

Stand With Ukraine Against Russia and China

By: Cliff Kincaid

One of the silliest defenses of Russia during the crisis with Ukraine is Pat Buchanan’s column, “Putin Wants His Own Monroe Doctrine,” suggesting Putin is only exercising authority over Europe that the United States has claimed for the Western hemisphere. Buchanan knows better. He was communications director for President Reagan when the Soviet Union and its client state, Cuba, were massively interfering in the Western hemisphere and sponsoring terrorism on American soil.

What Buchanan also ignores is that Russia signed the Budapest Memorandum, guaranteeing Ukraine’s sovereignty, in exchange for taking back control of Ukraine’s nuclear arsenal. Another Democratic president, Bill Clinton, arranged that sell-out.  

I went back into my library to find the 1985 booklet, “The Soviet-Cuban Connection in Central America and the Caribbean,” which explains how the Soviets (and now the Russians) had set a process in motion to take over country by country south of our border. In response, President Ronald Reagan launched the “Reagan Doctrine” of supporting anti-communist freedom fighters to put pressure on the communists in their own backyard.

One great success for our side was the defeat of Soviet-Cuban forces in Grenada when Reagan ordered the island liberated from the communists.

The 1982 hearing, “Role of Cuba in International Terrorism and Subversion,” also examines Soviet/Russian violation of the Monroe Doctrine.
